Environmental Advisory Review Committee (EARC)


EARC’s duties include providing advice to Council about environmental initiatives and policies related to the Town of Canmore. EARC also advises Council about public awareness and understanding of particular environmental issues that may arise. Finally, Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Impact Assessments may be reviewed by EARC with a report of EARC’s findings presented to Council.

This Committee also oversees a set of environmental initiatives that involve the community in environmental stewardship. The goal is to help move Canmore towards a more sustainable future with less negative impact on the environment.
